WAR40K devs laid off, game will no longer be an MMO

Warhammer 40k: Dark Millennium Online - some paladin space marine dude or something

The on-again off-again saga of Warhammer 40K is apparently off again, at least in regard to the title’s future as an MMORPG. In early February we reported on some rumored THQ financial trouble, but the company later pooh-poohed the concerns and said that WAR40K was still on track.

Today, though, our sister site reports that Dark Millennium Online will axe the online portion of its lengthy moniker and the company will be producing the title as a single-player game going forward. A substantial number of jobs have also been cut, with 79 Vigil Games employees and 39 Relic Entertainment employees receiving pink slips.
